Stern Dutch Colonial With Grayscale Interiors Asks $8.9M

New, 7 comments

With a neutral color palette dominated by driftwood gray and sandy taupe, this six-bedroom Dutch colonial doesn't exactly announce itself as a beachfront Florida getaway. Devoid as it is of nautical stripes and shell-themed doodads, the place might even rate among the gravest-looking high-end vacation homes out there. As designer Susan Ferrier told Coastal Living in 2010, "A lot of master bedrooms become lady-rooms. This one isn't." Far be it from us to equate muted, earthy tones with masculinity, but one could probably expand that conclusion to the home's entire 5,208 square feet —by McAlpine, Booth & Ferrier, an architecture firm responsible for many an out-of-the-ordinary coastal property—from the distressed cypress beams in the den to the black metal light fixtures in the dining room. Listed at a whopping $8.9M, this oh-so-serious abode also boasts "phenomenal gulf views" and a kitchen that's nothing short of a "chef's delight." Here, have a look:
